While attending a conference at the University of Minho in Braga, I selected the Hotel do Elevador partially because of its location and size. With fewer than 25 rooms, it proved to be an intimate experience. It is located above the city, overlooking the statuary on Bom Jesus... views are simply spectacular. The plaza/terrace outside the hotel has informal eating/bar/picnic... More

The view is wonderful. Tool a walk through the park and listened to singers at the church the first night. After that there is nothing to do. There is no pool. The pool is shared and located one of the other 3 hotels on this park. It is small, hot, and indoors. You have to take a cab to go... More

We stayed two nights here very comfortably. I think every room has a view over the valley. We ate here a couple of times, food was OK but not spectacular. There is no transport down to Braga town, so you have to take a taxi. It's a pretty location at the top of the funicular railway, which is powered by... More

We stayed at Hotel do Templo but were asked to eat at Elevador Restaurant which is located just across the courtyard. The staff were very attentive helpful the meal was excellent complemented...

I stayed in Hotel do Elevador for five nights as a Prestige Travel client. It is very beautiful architectonically and has a privileged location, with wonderful surroundings and an amazing view over the city of Braga. Although the rooms are a bit small and the decoration is poor, in need of a room remodeling. The bathroom, on the other hand,... More

Not being the best navigators, we were intimidated by the possibility of circling Braga streets in search of a hotel. I remembered from the literature that there were several hotels at Bom Jesus do Monte and, as we were arriving in late afternoon, we drove directly there -- no parking problems and Hotel do Elevador (on the same level as...

You get what you pay for I suppose. A reasonably priced hotel with a great view. Rooms are musty, beds hard. Internet is 8 euros an hour and can only be accessed in the lobby on your own computer or by walking up the hill to the one computer shared by other hotels (still costs 8 euros!). Staff was friendly... More

We have just came from a four days holidays at Hotel do Elevador at Monte do Bom Jesus near the city of Braga. The location is excelent and the view is great! You can relax there because it isn't in the middle of the city and it's surrounded by beautiful gardens. The Hotel is confortable (not to fancy, but sufficient),... More
